The Triplets of Belleville with live score at Proctors

This could be fun: Proctors will be hosting a screening of the animated film The Triplets of Belleville with a live performance of the score in the GE Theater February 13.

The score will be played be a nine-piece jazz ensemble -- Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville -- led by Benoît Charest, who wrote much of the music for the film. The clip embedded above is the ensemble playing along with the film in Montreal a few years back.

And if you've never seen the film -- it's a surreal blending o 1930s jazz, the Tour de France, the mob, and a mystery.

The performance at Proctors is Saturday, February 13 at 8 pm. Tickets are $20 and up.

So now we have:

Ratatouille performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra on August 6th at SPAC,

Raiders of the Lost Ark performed by the Boston Pops at Tanglewood on August 26th,

and this one, The Triplets of Belleville! I'm excited about all three, but maybe Triplets the most. It has such a unique sound and should be really fun to see live (in a small space, too!)
